Behavioral Science Elementary Teacher Education Program. Final Report. Volume II.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing.
Volume II separately details two model components: Scholarly Modes of Knowledge, in which problem-solving techniques and the applicability of subject content to teaching are emphasized, and Professional Use of Knowledge, in which the student translates what he knows about various disciplines and human learning into instructional strategies. Each component, introduced with reference to its overall purpose and place within the program, is divided into subject matter areas. Scholarly Modes of Knowledge encompasses linguistics, communication (with a memo on a simulation game, "Change Agent"), literature for children, fine arts (subdivided into visual, aural, and motor experiences), social science, science, mathematics, and program specialization. Professional Use of Knowledge, which is based on the assumption that instruction in clinical analysis will benefit a prospective teacher more than blind textbook obedience, is aligned with reading, language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics. The scope of each subject matter area is revealed through descriptions or outlines of objectives, rationale, hypotheses, unique approaches, development of analytical skills or modes of inquiry, organization, resources, content, and syllabuses. Computer print-outs of sample modules accompany each area. SP 002 428, SP 002 430, and ED 018 677 are related documents. (LP)
